Ingredients

  • 5 russet potatoes scrubbed clean
  • 10 slices of thick cut bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 5 roma tomatoes diced
  • 1/2 cup lettuce diced into small pieces
  • 3 green onions diced
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. salt

For the dressing:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 packet ranch dressing mix
  • 1 tsp. chipotle powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Poke fork holes into the potatoes and put in the microwave. Cook for 8 minutes, flip over, and cook 8 additional minutes.
  2. When done in the microwave, cut potatoes in half and scoop out inside, leaving about 1/4 inch of potato around the border. Brush insides and outsides with olive oil and sprinkle both sides with salt. Place face down on a baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes and then remove from oven.
  3. Mix cheese and bacon together in a bowl. Add 1 tbsp. of bacon cheddar mixture to the inside of each potato well. Return to oven for 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
  4. Garnish each potato with lettuce, tomato, and green onion and any remaining bacon and cheddar.
  5. In a small mixing bowl, mix together all dressing ingredients. Refrigerate until serving.
  6. Serve warm with dipping sauce.
